Hyde Marine is a world leader in UV ballast water treatment systems (BWTS) designed to prevent the spread of non-indigenous aquatic organisms. The company has more than 30 years’ experience in diverse water treatment solutions and UV technology.
Through its Hyde GUARDIAN® BWTS, Hyde Marine was one of the first suppliers of a safe, chemical free UV disinfection solution to receive IMO Type Approval in 2009. Hyde Marine was one of the first to receive Alternative Management System (AMS) approval from the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG). Additionally, the company installed one of the first BWTS aboard a ship (M/S Coral Princess), which subsequently was the first BWTS in the USCG’s Shipboard Technology Evaluation Program (STEP).
Launched in 2014, the Hyde GUARDIAN Gold™ BWTS has the smallest footprint in the market, an optimized operator interface and is updated to meet current regulatory requirements. The Hyde GUARDIAN Gold BWTS allows for reduced ballast time, continuous and increased flow to ballast tanks and reduction in peak power requirements.

With more than 500 systems sold, the Hyde GUARDIAN BWTS is suitable for a broad range of treatment requirements and can be installed in new builds or retrofitted in-situ to existing vessels with no downtime.
